The staff were absolutely fantastic and went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. Privacy, relaxation, tranquillity, comfort and nature are what this place is about. The only change I would make is that the address... More

The good: Nice quiet green location 2... More

The chalet was beautiful, decor and the set of for a romantic weekend was lovely. It's a bit chilly at night once the fire stops going (wood log fire place not gas). The bed was very comfortable.
